Easter – The ETERNAL Gift!!!
Jesus was tortured almost to death! He was nailed on a cross to die (for you and I!) Jesus died worse than a criminals death! The ‘rightists’ pushed for execution of this one person Who spoke truism. It got under their skin! When Jesus was ‘tried’ and presented before Pilate. NO wrong was found in Him.
Yet! The crowd was pressed to shout “crucify Him!” Jesus gave no impassioned plea; rather He pointed out that He was called King of the Jews.
Note; there are always supernatural forces at work: : Pontius Pilate’s wife is the unnamed spouse of Pontius Pilate, who appears only once in the Gospel of Matthew, where she intercedes with Pilate on Jesus’ behalf.
Good Friday: It is done!
Easter Sunday: He is RISEN! Hallelujah!!!
There were no intravenous fluids or transfusions. In a tomb with a stone, guarded by Roman guards Jesus body was laid.
Yet, the stone was rolled away, guards frightened away by the supernatural: An angel appears and scares away the guards, and the empty tomb is revealed. When the guards report this to the chief priests, the priests bribe the guards to lie about the events: …some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests everything that had happened.
He is Risen: Hallelujah!!!
